    1. Hi Richard, if you haven’t understood that then I have to ask that you start at chapter one and watch all the way through as this is very important to how you will absorb the knowledge and what you will take away from it. I design and script these courses to teach the right information in the right order. Thanks Karl.

  1. Hi Karl, this whole lighting course has been invaluable and very well scripted. When I originally thought about subscribing I thought it would be another one of those courses that promised all and delivered very little. I can honestly say that in every video I learn a tremendous amount, and my photography is already reaching new heights. Thank you.

  2. great stuff – did wonder about why you might stand on stool on this lesson as camera so high – is that just a creative choice so can shoot down on model and see more of the background gradient?

      1. do i need flash bracket to attach a round diffuser ? sorry but i am newbie and so interesting with this course

  3. Hi Karl

    I’m working with a white solid, painted infinite curve. I do not have a grey background. I would like to use the gradient technique. Can I still achieve a grey background by moving my other 2 studio lights much further forward and achieve a similar result ?
    Thx

    1. Hi Ezetna, yes you can still achieve a good gradient on a white infinite curve. See our recent live shows page on Business Portraits and see that in action.
